Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Fabulous Florals Tag using Carabelle Studio's Colorful Life Stamp Set

Welcome to another week and another Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!  This week's theme is Fabulous Florals.  I made a tag using Carabelle Studio's Colorful Life stamp set (designed by the talented Birgit Koopsen).

I started with Distress Kraft Heavystock and cut out a tag shape using a Sizzix Tag Collection die and my Sizzix Big Shot.  I glued some paper to the front (Family Fun by Simple Stories) and threw in some washi tape, though the tape totally gets covered up by the end of this project.

I slathered on some white paint (you know how I do) and stenciled some blue dots onto the tag using Tim Holtz's Dotted stencil and London Blue paint.

Bring on the color!  I scribbled a circle using Dina Wakley's Scribble Sticks, then colored in and around the circle with various colors of acrylic paint.  I also stamped some text on a piece of scrap paper (the text is from Tim Holtz's Theories stamp set) and cut it into a circle-frame shape.  I also stamped and cut out the artistic branch/foliage/flower stem shape from the Colorful Life stamp set.  I added paint to the branch.  I also ripped out a number and colored that as well.

That left the assembling!  I got out the UHU glue stick and went to work.  Once it was glued down, I added some more paint around the edges and this tag was done.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
